SourceForge Ships OpenID!!


SourceForge.net shipped support for OpenID this morning followed by an official announcement on their community forums. In just a few seconds I had my OpenID tied to my existing SF account. Their implementation seems very solid and straight forward.

This certainly makes them one of the largest, most prominent OpenID Relying parties to date.
I sure hope this leads to all of OSTG websites ( Slashdot, Thinkgeek, Freshmeat, etc…) following suit.

Their front page now advertises: 1,840,049 Users + 250,000,000 OpenIDs 🙂

Their OpenID management screen is really hot; It allows you to add additional OpenIDs to your account, decide which one you want to make public (if any) and choose one to delegate your SourceForge.net endpoint to. So developers can use http://sourceforge.net/users/username as their OpenID endpoint.

Digg It!
